Low prices on the Kimber 84M Varmint start at Champion Firearms- Kimber refers to the 84M Varmint as the "difinitive walking varminter". There's been a lot of talk about walking varmint rifles and the Kimber 84M Varmint comes about as close to ideal as possible. In designing its short-action rifles, Kimber has been able to achieve a balance between action size, power and weight that sets the Model 84M apart from the competition. The heart of this achievement is the action. Often called a miniature Model 70, the Kimber centerfire action has been scaled down in diameter, length and weight to match the cartridge case length.
By down-sizing the heart of its Model 84M, Kimber has been able to proportion the barrel and stock in relation to the miniature action. The result is an esthetically pleasing, well-balanced and handy rifle. The Kimber 84M Varmint is remarkably light for a heavy barrel rifle made of steel and stocked in genuine Grade A walnut. The Kimber 84M Varmint model runs 7 pounds, 5 ounces with a fluted, stainless 24-inch barrel.
The small cylindrical Kimber 84M action offers controlled-round feeding, a Mauser-type extractor, a fully adjustable trigger, and a two-position Model 70 type safety on the bolt shroud. Functionally, the action is slick and tight. It shares with the Model 70 its famous cone breech, which facilitates feeding from a five-round box magazine and a positive blade ejector that works slot that is offset in the bolt face from the locking lugs. The firing pin is noticeably small and light, resulting in a lock-time that is just short of phenomenal. The Kimber 84M Varmint bottom metal, featuring a straddle-type floorplate and through-the-triggerguard release is clean and custom looking. In fact, the overall finish of the metal work approaches custom quality.
The Grade A walnut stock on the Kimber 84M Varnint incorporates classic lines with a rounded forearm, handsome grip, 20- LPI forearm checkering, a steel grip cap, sling swivel bases, and rubber recoil pad. The action is fiberglass and aluminum pillar-bedded for long- term strength and accuracy.
